We've created a calm space to share your own experience around grief and also listen and talk with others in a relaxing and informal virtual setting, most possibly unlike one you have yet to encounter.
Grief can often feel isolating, lonely and overwhelming. We aim to create a space for individuals to share their stories, or listen to others' stories about grief.
The Grief Café is an environment where everyone has dealt with grief in one form or another. Our aim is to facilitate a space with which to share stories and methods of coping with grief within our vibrant online community.
Most importantly, we want to normalise the conversation around death and grief.
Who can you expect to meet?
As with our previous events, the main hosts will be Katie and Evee from The Grief Reality blog and you will be welcomed into our calm space by Arwa from Yoga Of Life. In addition, we also have international grief specialists, bereavement councillors and other invited 'special' guests, who will share their stories, listen and offer practical advice and guidance.
What Can You Expect?
You can expect to meet with people from all walks of life who have gone through a similar experience to you. While no two grief journeys are the same, we want to build a community to learn from and listen to each other. We are a compassionate community where we can all help one another without judgement.

Good Grief was originally planned as a week-long festival in Bristol to help people talk, think and learn about grief. But then…Covid-19 hit and it became clear that large live scale events won’t be possible for some time.
Since then, we have been working hard to bring Good Grief Festival online as a global virtual event, taking place from October 30th to November 1st at a studio in the UK, reaching thousands of people all over the world.
Good Grief deeply believe that a festival exploring grief is more important than ever before. We are now working on a diverse programme of free events including talks, workshops, cultural events, wellbeing and more.
Funded by the Wellcome Trust, Good Grief is a collaboration between the University of Bristol and national charities and bereavement services.
You can still catch up and watch the festival here https://goodgrieffest.com/
2020 – #SHAREYOURSTORY
We are proud to support National Grief Awareness Week 2020 – 2nd – 8th December. Please share this year’s hashtags #ShareYourStory and #NGAW20 and on all your social media platforms.
To help the bereaved feel acknowledged and understood
To help those grieving and the professionals working with them, to find the support they need NOW
To help those supporting their grieving friends and family to know what to say and do
To help the smaller support organisations raise their profile and reach those in need in the community.
What if facing death allowed us to live our lives more fully? What if there were more spaces where people came together to honour those they care about? Reimagine is an inspiring global community and events platform where people of all backgrounds come together to navigate the hardest things we face. As a non-profit organization, Reimagine aims to transform our tired cultural attitudes and experiences around dying, grieving...and living.
Take 10 is a free virtual experience on December 10th where everyone is invited featuring celebrities and unsung heroes, from the well-known to the emerging.
Together, we will declare a National Day where we celebrate, share stories and openly discuss the hard stuff: caregiving, grief and loss, the end of life, social isolation and mental health. We’ll gather in solidarity, find solace in each other and surface solutions. It’s our time to embrace the good, the bad, the messy and surprising gift of being alive.
Invite your friends, family, and someone who needs a little light this year (let’s be honest, that’s all of us.) Then, take 10 minutes to start a conversation with those you invited and others you care about.
The organizers of Une Bonne Mort identified an absence of conversations about access, marginalized humans, autonomy, and community.
This year's conference attendees will include medical & non-medical professionals, human resources managers, hospice home owners, and other caregivers. May we learn together, share a meal, and help increase access to a good death for everyone.
